Summer hues: white and blue

& Other Stories clutch and Converse All Star Dainty OX trainers

Do you have any go-to colours this summer? I'm loving light blue and white. Together that is. There is something utterly chic and classic about the mix of these two together. They somehow seem to work with every sort of summer outing: a trip to the farmer's market on a beautiful sunday morning, an afternoon sailing in the mediterranean, a luncheon with friends in town, a lovely bike ride in the countryside or a picnic at the beach. I think I could easily live on a summer wardrobe that's 50 shades of white and blue. Could you?  

Summer Evening Walks

The weather has been glorious so far this week so Richard and I decided to make the most of it by going on a romantic little evening walk after dinner tonight. I put on my new COS dress, my favourite shades and we went wandering down cobbled streets and cute alleyways hand in hand while the sun was going down. Don't you love summer evenings?! I firmly intend on making this sunny evening walk thing a part of our routine.

Sunday Notes

Happy Sunday everyone! I haven't written my sunday notes in a while so I thought I'd do a little roundup today with all my recent favourite links. One thing I love about being a blogger is the amount of inspiration you get from this community. It never ceases to amaze me and it keeps me going when I feel like I'm stuck in a blogging rut. I just have to open my web browser and look around!

First link I absolutely must mention is Jessica's incredible fresh mint iced coffee recipe (this is what I'm drinking in the photo). It's good, refreshing and an ideal lazy sunday morning drink. 

One of my favourite social networks lately is Instagram. I have discovered so many bloggers and photographers this way. I've been glued to my feed every day. My favourite users at the moment are Sophie Learmont, Katie Mitchell, Marissa CoxJulia Hengel, and of course the unmissable Jessica Stein who never fails to give me incredible wanderlust throughout the entire year.

Blogger Sophie Learmont started a business with her dad called What To Cook Tonight. Ok that one is not that recent but I'm still in awe of this. She does the photography for it and oh my god, she is good. SO good! The food looks (and I'm sure tastes too) amazing. You guys should check out their website, especially if you're Australian based as they're in  Sydney. It's so fun seeing bloggers I've been following for years getting professional opportunities from blogging or simply finding out what they want to do with their lives. Some decide to set up social media consultancies, others become photographers, others go on to write books. I hope one day I go on to do something very special too. 

Richard and I have been talking a lot about going to Mallorca this summer. We don't really know what to expect as we've been hearing mixed reviews. On paper, it certainly looks amazing. Funnily enough, I discovered this great blog called Let It Be Cosy written by food photographer Rocio. She lives there and her photos are beautiful. Her perspective is also very different because she's based in a little village so not quite in the middle of the whole party scene that I was kind of dreading. It's definitely giving me the final push I needed to go and explore the island. 

Hope you've found these links interesting and hopefully discovered a couple of new bloggers or instagrammers. Wishing you all a  wonderful Sunday! 


HEATWAVE! After the past few couple of weeks, this is a real treat. And Richard and I like treats.  A lot. We wanted to make the most of it so we packed the car and headed to his house in the countryside for a lush barbecue, pimms and a game of French boules in the garden. Best idea ever! I am now writing this blog post a Swedish cider in hand, a big smile on my face and thinking the weekend is starting pretty well. Happy Friday everyone!

Beach weekend part II

I love Southwold. This has to be one of my favourite Suffolk coast towns. It's so quaint and pretty. Have you guys been there yet?
